Servings 2


  • 1 1/4 oz ginger syrup
  • 3 1/2 oz vodka
  • 1 3/4 oz lime juice
  • 1 tsp coriander seeds, lightly toasted
  • 10 cilantro leaves

Ginger Syrup

  • 3 inch piece of ginger, peeled and coarsely chopped
  • 3/4 cup superfine sugar
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 2 pieces crystallized ginger, for garnish


  1. Place the ginger syrup in a cocktail shaker, along with all remaining ingredients and plenty of cubed ice. Shake hard for about 20 seconds, then double-strain (through a Hawthorne strainer and into a fine-mesh sieve) into two prechilled martini glasses. Garnish with a piece of crystallized ginger. Serve at once. 

Ginger Syrup

  1. To make the ginger syrup, place the ginger, sugar and water in a blender. Blitz for about 45 seconds, until fully combined. You will make about 1 1/4 cups of syrup, which can be kept in the fridge, or frozen, for future use.
